In order to fight your enemy you must know your enemy! You could just
choose to avoid all of the hostile mobs in Minecraft, but you can get things from that that are either hard or impossible to get elsewhere. So, before you venture out at night or into the dark depths of the caves, read up on your enemy and be ready to fight!

Step 1: Weapons and Armor

If you are going to fight monsters, you need to be properly prepared.

Crafting Weapons

  • 1 Stick + 2 (Wood Planks | Gold Ingots | Cobblestone| Iron Ingots | Diamond) = 1 Sword
  • 3 Sticks + 3 Pieces of String = 1 Bow
  • 1 Stick + 1 Feather + 1 Piece of Flint = 4 Arrows


  • 5 Ores (in an upside down "U") = Helmet
  • 8 Ores (in all spots but top middle) = Chestplate
  • 7 Ores (in large upside down "U") = Leggings
  • 4 Ores (in two little columns) = Boots

<p>I didn't know that, thanks for sharing :)</p>
How can I get obsidian blocks in survival mode
<p>I talk about mining Obsidian in my <a href="https://www.instructables.com/id/Mining-in-Minecraft/" target="_blank">Mining Ores and other materials in Minecraft</a> Instructable. </p><p>You can find it anywhere in the world because it is created when water flows into lava (it doesn't just naturally generate). Because of this, it is usually found above or below lava pools making it difficult to mine. You need to clear the area around it to make sure you don't get killed by lava and make sure the obsidian doesn't fall into the lava after you mine it, which would destroy it. You also can only mine it with a diamond pickaxe. Hope that helps!</p>
<p>Thanks for sharing</p>
Thx, U may find it hard to believe, But I found a cave in extreme hill biome, 3 emeralds, 23 gold, and 71 iron, And A ton of redstone
Hello, I've hung in one of the caves and I can not go back, what to do
<p>I'm not sure I know what you mean when you say you hung in one of the caves. Can you take a screenshot to show me what you mean?</p>
I lost the way
<p>Unfortunately, since all the worlds are randomly generated (the world you are playing in is unique to you), I can't help you get out the way you came in. But, I would suggest you start digging your way up to the surface (create steps as you go so you can get yourself up higher and higher). You might not be able to find where you went down, but at least you'll be out in the open rather than trapped in a cage.</p><p>Hope that helps!</p>
I Collect material inside deep caves, then lost the way, I can not go out, I do not know how
<p>Nice dis is profile picture by the way</p>
<p>you can just go to peaceful</p>
<p>If you set the block where a Enderman stands on fire, the Enderman will be set on fire as well, and take damage. However, since he was hurt by fire that was on the ground, he won't attack you, nor will he teleport - not too far, anyway. This way, you can easily kill an Enderman, without taking any risk at all. Thought I might share the tip. (I would give credit as to where I read this, but I don't really remember it, though)</p>
<p>Nice :)</p>
<p>(setting the block on fire with a flint &amp; steel, that is)</p>
<p>Hi, inspired by this article and wishes of my son I created a mod where the player can learn fighting monsters. Think of this mod (<a href="https://sites.google.com/site/mccombattraining/" rel="nofollow">MC Combat Training</a>) as a player's Guardian angel. The training will not be interrupted by dead, because in the mod there is life guard. But not only: the damage is reported to you. You can stop training if there is no many damage reports. But to become faster better warrior, the advices from this article and other tutorials are implemented as hints and displayed after a damage. :) </p>
<p>since you have the skills to make a mod could you please make me a minecraft private server for me and my friends and you can join if you want</p>
Hi :) You can make a private server by your own. Search youtube or internet for &quot;how to set minecraft private server&quot;. For example:<br>&quot;https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wlniddgQLlw&quot;&quot;.<br>If you don't have network basic knowledge you should ask somebody near you to help you.
<p>i have tried before but it almost destroyed my computer so i cant so please do it and i will really let you in because i want to do i series on it</p>
<p>Hi I can not do it remotely (and I don't want to try) I think you should ask somebody you know. Don't give access to your computer to strangers.</p>
<p>are you by any chance</p>
<p>what do you mean cant you just make it where you live and then just give me the server ip please me and my friends have tried</p>
Hey penelopy do u have mc in pocket edition
<p>Sorry for the HUGE delay, but I don't. I only have computer edition.</p>
<p>amazing tutorial for stuff like 1.7:mobs for dummies :)</p>

You have some of the best instructables!!!!!????? I'm going to start follow you???
thank you for this tutorial it really works even im using WORLDCRAFT <br>
oh sorry. wrong send. i will send this in other tutorial<br>
Thank you for taking time out to create all of your tutorials. They are greatly appreciated. (The image is because they won't let me post without one.)
<p>Thanks for taking the time to check it out :) It was a lot of fun playing and making these tutorials :)</p>
<p>Wither Skeletons also have a rare drop of a Wither Skeleton Head, the heads are used in creating the wither boss.</p>
Killed two enderman today, And enderman cant be hit With projectiles like arrows or snowballs
<p>The trick with an Enderman is to never look in its eyes. Keep your eyes lowered, and hit it. 5 hits with a diamond sword does the trick. If you raise your eyes, it'll start teleporting, and is a pain to catch, and might double back on you at an inopportune time. </p>
<p>Thanks for the info! I thought they could be hit by snowballs but they teleport right away if they are hit by them.</p>
<p>Creepers are great in groups. You can usually get one to kill other mobs of you time it right. One hit, back up juuuuust enough, then let the creeper hiss and pop... BAM! Dead monsters. </p>
Was a nice totorial, But monster spawners r taken out faster with a pickaxe
<p>I started &quot;saving&quot; the spawners and blocking the rooms so the monsters can't get out, but I can kill them through the hole in the wall. Skeletons are hard to do that with, but it's a cheap way to get goods they can drop. </p>
<p>Thanks for the tip!</p>
Had an accident with Lava though:)
<p>Lava is such a troublemaker! </p>
Np, Just started playing again yesterday
<p>to cure a villager zombie you must first use a splash potion of weakness on it, then feed it a golden apple</p>
<p>ughhhh now I feel like playing minecraft again @_@ </p>
<p>DO IT!</p>
